Winning the Kaw Valley League title would mean more this year than any other in the past. With the end of the 2017-2018 school year, Piper High School will be officially leaving the KVL. The girls’ and boys’ varsity basketball teams are looking to capture the title for one last time.

Currently, the varsity boys are sitting in second place and the varsity girls are sitting in first place. The girls’ and boys’ varsity teams are defending champions of the KVL and both teams went to the state tournament last year. The teams are looking to repeat their success with goals of winning the KVL and going on to win the state tournament.

The Pirates have a rough stretch of games in the month of February. Some of the upcoming opponents include long time rivals Basehor-Linwood and Bonner Springs. The Pirates will play the remainder of the season with four road games and three homes games. All senior basketball players have a guaranteed seven games left, so they are trying to make the most of those games.  

The boys’ varsity currently have a record of 9-4 with a big game against Basehor-Linwood Tuesday, Jan. 30. The girls’ varsity team is currently 12-0 after playing in the Top Gun Tournament at Wellsville. The girls’ varsity team won the tournament, defeating the Baldwin Bulldogs.

The Pirates are looking to repeat their success of last year by winning the KVL and advancing to the state tournament.
